Google Google has just unveiled its Chrome OS operating system during a press event at the company's headquarters, and it's pretty much exactly what we expected it to be: a streamlined Linux kernel booting straight into the Chrome web browser. The code is available starting today.

Open Drivers? I am actually somewhat worried about the OEM validation policies (although I guess they can be hacked out). I will put pressure on selected hardware vendors, but I'd call it partnerships.
Then, no hard-drives is another funny one... The vision if for light(weight) machines, that store as little as possible locally. I guess this can also be easily hacked around. But will the firmware be modifiable as to allow for a different kernel, with all the checksumming?
